I am using Access 2003 for an application.  I have been using popup forms for years and they have been working properly.  Recently, the popup forms open very small; about 2in x 2in.  I have not found any other problems.

This occurs only when the form is in the Datasheet mode.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I am suppose to roll out a new version and I know my customer is not going to like the "new" popup form feature.

open the form in design view, set the popup property to NO, save and close
open the form in form view
now size the form to the size you like by positioning the mouse to the edge of the form till you see a double arrow cursor, drag the cursor to size the form
click save

now open the form in design view  and set the popup property to Yes save and close

Thanks, your method worked.
I thought I was using the same method but apparently I was not clicking on save after re-sizing.
Actually makes me feel a little stupid but at least the problem is resolved.

Thanks again for the quick response.

The solution did not work form me.  I am using MS Access 2003, and it still opens small no matter what I do as long as the datasheet is set to "popup".
